Take me to Delos where the sun can be seen
Take me to Hydra where no cars are allowed
Take me to Paros to hide from the crowd
Silicon Valley where the “brain” is at one
With computers, cell phones-just type “Uncle Tom”
Let me bow down to the new Armageddon
Freedom a dream. Humanity never.
Let me walk in a lane whilst texting, whilst safe
Sparing the car computer-driven at haste
There is little left now of who I once was
There someone on Facebook like me, like God
Take me away to a place without keys
Take me away to a place with a breeze
Take me away to a place where people still smile
Take me away to a place where I can pause for a while
Give my right arm for my silicon chip
To boost my left brain that’s taken a dip
Give me a card; who needs all those coins?
And why should I think when I need some more oil?
My cell phone tells me when my joints start to creak
I’ve got the best knees but my jaw’s like a beak
In this virtual world it’s hidden, I look like Tom Cruise
But so does everyone else; so hard to choose
I dream of an island, of nature, blue skies
The ones without chemtrails, nanoparticles, robot eyes
I dream of a world of mountains and seas
Of valleys and forests and real humans like me
There’s lots of is left but are we enough?
To stem the tide of compliance of sell-out of “stuff”
Love conquers all I read in a tweet
God help us all the future looks bleak
If this carries on all that’s left will be one
Effing great computer interfacing with sheep
The chipped, the hacked, the humourless geeks
However tonight I’ll sleep like a babe
Love indeed conquers all, “babe” rhymes with “grave”
Bury this nightmare before it’s too late.
